Trump vows 'war-like posture' if Democrats investigate him

Mitch McConnell Senate majority leader says Democratic efforts to hold Trump to account could backfire on them

Mitch McConnell Senate majority leader says Democratic efforts to hold Trump to account could backfire on them

U.S. Rep. Richard Neal, of MA, is the ranking member on the House Ways and Means Committee and is expected to take over as chairman of the panel when the Democrats assume control of the House in January after winning a majority of seats in Tuesday's election.

With Democrats set to reclaim control of the House in January and President Trump already infuriating them with the forced resignation of Attorney General Jeff Sessions, speculation is rampant over whether they will use that power to pursue impeachment against the president - or even Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

Trump has long felt aggrieved by the special counsel's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. He added that he was willing to work with Democrats on key priorities but felt any investigations of his administration would hurt prospects for bipartisanship.

During the Thursday conference call, House Democrats said they would attempt to include legislation protecting Mueller's investigation in an appropriations bill that Congress is due to consider later this year. "It can hurt us going into 2020".

Numerous candidates for whom Trump campaigned did indeed win on Wednesday (as of PJ Media's count, 49 of the Republicans he endorsed won, 30 of them lost, but his entire slate in Florida won).

"The data are clear that the state is evenly divided but the Legislature has massive majorities for one party because they rigged the maps", said Sachin Chheda, director of the Fair Election Project, which organized the lawsuit.

Meanwhile, Nancy Pelosi, the current House minority leader and now front runner for the position of speaker, praised her party's performance and pledged that the new Democrat majority would work to rein in the White House.

President Donald Trump points to CNN's Jim Acosta as he speaks during a news conference in the East Room of the White House, Wednesday, Nov. 7, 2018, in Washington. We will have a responsibility to honour our oversight responsibilities and that's the path we will go down.

Blackburn said in her victory speech, "Now you don't have to worry if you are going to call me congressman or congresswoman or congress lady". The newspaper argues that the Senate race was skewed in Republicans' favour and that the fact "Democrats just took over a chamber of Congress is a big thing for them, period". Democrat victories saw Colorado's Jared Polis became the first openly gay man to be elected governor, while Michigan's Rashida Tlaib and Minnesota's Ilhan Omar became the first Muslim women to gain seats in Congress.

Said Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway: "I don't know that there will be much of an appetite for Democrat lawmakers to spend all of their time, or most of their time or even a fraction of their time investigating, instigating, trying to impeach and subpoena people".

In the three races he targeted on the final day, Trump's picks won Tuesday night, with Republican Mike Braun defeating Democratic Sen.

She also vowed that House Democrats - who gained the majority in this week's election - will "fight to pass bipartisan, common sense solutions to prevent gun violence in communities across the country". "They did very poorly".

"The worst-case scenario - or best case depending on your point of view - you prove he committed perjury, about a awful subject and the Judicial Conference recommends you impeach him".

Trump, meanwhile, warned that a flood of investigations of his administration would prompt "a warlike posture". His corporate tax cuts and the deregulation that have played a large hand in the USA stock market's rally since the 2016 election, however, are likely to remain untouched.

"A lot of people thought I was being sarcastic or I was kidding".

"I can see it being extremely good politically", he said.
